Open Door needs 1-2 volunteers to read with preschool children and work on coloring sheets while their mother participates in a parenting class.

The parent will be nearby.

We will provide training in bringing a book to life for the children and how to be interactive with the story.

Volunteers need to enjoy working with young children.


  • To provide an environment to allow the mother to participate in the parenting program
  • To encourage children to enjoy books and reading, to better prepare them to become Kindergarten Ready. This is part of our Reach Out and Read Program, a national literacy program.
  • Coloring sheets often have targeted messages such as nutrition, wellness and self-esteem.
